The new iPad 9 and iPad mini have arrived (and you can find an initial look at reviews for them here and here, respectively). Both are great upgrades for anyone looking for a new iPad. We’re always trying to keep you updated on all the best iPhone, iPad, and MacBook trade in deals every month, and here’s what we’re finding for trade in values for iPads in the wake of the announcement.

Upgrading your iPad can be tough if you don’t know where to start. There are lots of questions: Do you want to sell it yourself? Trade it in with a third party service? Trade it in with Apple? We’ll help demystify the process. For one, you can check out our full trade in guide for the iPad, which lays out all your basic options for selling/trading in your device and upgrading.

If you, like many, decide that trading in your device for an Apple Gift Card or cash is going to be the best mix of convenience and value, we’ve compiled some of the best trade in values we’ve found across the web below. These are all sites we would use ourselves, and you can click on any of the below links to learn more about the trade in process at each respective trade in destination.
